TITLE
Recommendation to receive supporting documentation into the record regarding the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act (TEFRA) public hearing; and adopt resolution approving the issuance of revenue bonds by the California Statewide Communities Development Authority (CSCDA), to benefit Brethren Manor Senior Care, L.P., or its affiliates, Brethren Manor Apartments, in an amount not to exceed $25,000,000.

The rehabilitation of the property will include modernization of all common areas, replacement of major systems, including an elevator, HVAC, windows, electrical, lighting, upgrades to fire, life and safety, and complete refurbishment of the individual units.
